But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
If you have ever felt like you were at the end of your rope; today’s promise for you.
The Apostle Paul was in a particularly difficult time in his life. He had prayed and prayed for God to remove what he called a “thorn in his flesh.” We don’t know that the “thorn in the flesh” was. It could have been a physical ailment, or it could have been the continued persecution he received as he preached the Gospel.
We do know that Paul felt the “thorn” limited his ministry and affected his life. We know Paul asked God on three different occasions to remove it.
God finally answered his prayer by saying, “My grace is sufficient for you.”
Then God went on to say that His power was made evident in Paul’s weakness.
What is God’s Grace?
God’s grace is His unmerited favor. It’s God’s love, expressed for no other reason than He is a loving God.
God’s grace in your life strengthens and empowers you. His grace brought about your salvation. There was nothing you did to make God love you. It was His grace that drew you to Himself in the first place.
We pray for God to remove or resolve the problems we face.
If God would just get rid of the problem, life would be much better. Sometimes God’s answer is not to remove the problem, but to give us His strength and power to go through the situation.
We may feel you need to be strong to bring glory to God. God says that His power, combined with your weakness, is a formula for His glory.
Whatever you are facing today, God’s grace is enough. It has been said that you will never know Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have.
Let’s look at that promise once again.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Confess this with me.– 2 Corinthians 12:9
Make this confession.
I have God’s grace working in my life.
I have God’s unmerited favor.
His grace gives me strength, power, and comfort.
No matter what I face, God’s grace is enough for me.
I can face any situation because God’s grace is working in my life.
In Jesus Name,
When you feel like things are overwhelming you and you just can’t go on, remember God’s grace is enough.
